    from the ocean to the silver city...

    An exhibition curated by Merryn Trevethan of Australian and Singaporean based artists exploring some of the cultural ties that connect these two countries. Whether it be through study at Universities, Artists in Residence programs, workshops and mentorships or be it simply living in a new country, cultural exchanges can take on a wide variety different of forms and the cross pollination of ideas that enriches both participants and those they encounter along the way. This exhibition recognises artists who have taken the artistic plunge in another country and celebrates their continuing contribution to an ongoing cultural dialogue.

  • ANZA Tour: Experiencing Australian Art in Singapore

    ANZA Tour: Experiencing Australian Art in Singapore

    Coming up during Singapore Art Week...
    Here in the international art hub in the heart of Asia, this tour introduces the new directions of contemporary Australian art, and the adaptation of Australian art in Singapore. The tour includes two complementary talks, with the chance to asking questions and challenge concepts to better understand the practice of each artist.

    The tour begins at Yavuz Gallery with an exclusive sneak preview of Antipodean Inquiry: an exhibition of work by Australian artists. Be the first to experience this major exhibition of contemporary Australian art, ahead of its official opening on 22 January 2015. Guest Curator, Owen Craven, will lead the tour on a curatorial walk-through of the show.

    Synopsis: Antipodean Inquiry presents new work in various media by fifteen leading artists from Australia. The show seeks to explore the vast and varied approaches that make up the fabric of contemporary Australian art, highlighting disparate narratives. Exhibiting artists include Penny Byrne, Tamara Dean, Euan Macleod, Danie Mellor and Joan Ross.

    Then a short walk from Yavuz Gallery to Yeo Workshop in Block 1 where a welcome reception will be held in HUFF (House Under Four Flags), a 10m x 10m wooden sculpture, located outside Yeo Workshop, and currently occupied by Australian artist Merryn Trevethan as part of her three-month residency program.

    HUFF is a self-constructed sculpture built by artist Marcin Dudek. In response to his own need to work within a studio, he built his own. The work fulfilled the task of adding an exterior dimension to the gallery but also provided spatial availability in which artists could work in. Artist Merryn Trevethan has adopted the outdoor structure for a three-month residency program titled ‘The Outdoor Studio Installation Project.’ Seen as a platform upon which she extends her practice, the dynamics of public vs private are also questioned. An artist’s talk will commence, formally introducing the artist Merryn Trevethan, her practice and objectives. Engage in the conversation of Australian art in the context of Singapore.

    The Outdoor Studio Installation Project
    25 September 2015 - 31 January 2016

    The Outdoor Studio Installation Project is a residency program currently being completed at Gillman Barracks, Singapore. Seen as a progression of her own creative practice and an approach to incorporate her surroundings within a functional structure, the project is a means of exploring new possibilities.

    The structure titled HUFF (House Under Four Flags) is a 10m x 10m wooden sculptural installation and artist’s studio built by artist Marcin Dudek. The intention of the work was to create a functional space; more specifically to define it as an external artist’s studio. In light of the latter, Trevethan is fulfilling its objective and occupying the so-called ‘artist’s studio’ with her own distinctive practice. Elaborating on the notion of spatial awareness, the aim is to introduce the personal to the external. Therefore in some respect the project may be considered a means of public art.

    The project will commence on Friday 25th September 2015 and will be an ongoing project until January 2016. The work will grow periodically, allowing all gestural motifs to encapsulate the space over time.
